Rumsfeld targeted by anti-war protesters

A noisy protest is under way outside the Adelaide Town Hall where the US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is holding talks with Australian ministers at the AUSMIN meeting.

Chanting anti-war slogans, about 100 protesters braved the wet weather to line the security barriers outside the town hall.

But they have so far had no opportunity to get close to their target.

Mr Rumsfeld has been surrounded by a security detail, the size of which has never been seen in Adelaide.

One hooded protester was arrested after he scaled a security barrier.

South Australian Premier Mike Rann has already emerged from his 15 minute meeting with the Defence Secretary.

Mr Rumsfeld is due to address the media before flying out on Air Force Three this afternoon.
